We've become a society that believes people are absolutely entitled to live a life where nothing goes wrong. If something bad should happen, it's obviously because of negligence or malice on someone's part-- usually someone who has a lot of money.
Therefore, people who have bad things happen to them are entitled to be compensated for having their expectation of a perfect life disrupted-- somebody is to blame for every major tragedy or minor inconvenience.
I wish I could add something to this, but it's pretty much perfect as is. :)

The way I see it, it's lose/lose. If the rate of incident does go down then people really are that stupid. If it stays the same then it really is a waste of time and effort. Not sure there's a bright side here. ;)
I agree with you in spirit but I still think the 5-gallon bucket example is a really poor one in this case. We'd be better off with something like the taking Preparation H orally example but of course this is CoasterBuzz, and the internet, where no doubt we'll find *someone* to claim even the most reasonable warning signs imaginable are pointless and even the most sensible law suits are superfluous, etc. :)
Can I sue? And if so, do I have to mention the up-side? (my teeth didn't itch all day, lol)

Man, WalMart owes me ALOT of $$! :)
